HOME ORGANIZATION IN SHARED CUSTODY

Home organization

THE FIGURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, NEARLY 90 000 CHILDREN ARE AFFECTED BY THEIR PARENTS' SEPARATION EACH YEAR, AND THE NUMBER IS INCREASING

Without going into valuing the reasons that lead to this situation, what is a fact is that the change is profound for all family members.
Children in particular will need more stability in their environment than ever before.
The organization of your home is the first step to achieving the necessary tranquillity and security, in order to live in this new situation in the most normal manner.

1. TIME MANAGEMENT

You must manage your own time. To do this, carefully follow these steps.

SETTING TASKS AND OBJECTIVES
Example 1: In the mornings I must leave the house with the beds already made.
Example 2: Make sure the kitchen is clean and everything has been put away in its place.

TIME ALLOCATION
Each task and goal must be given a set time.

AGENDA
Write all of your goals and tasks with their corresponding time in an agenda. Whether it be digital or written on paper, planning is critical. When you write something down you will realize if your goals are realistic, detect problems and have the opportunity create a solution.

DELEGATION OF TASKS
If possible delegate. Do not let your own ego overwhelm you in order to prove you are a super dad or a super mom. If your mother tells you she'd be happy to lend a hand by making you some pre-prepared food in tupperware, accept it. Your children will be happy to eat their grandmother's special dishes.

ORGANIZATION OF YOUR TIME
Set a certain time limit for looking at your Emails, Calls, and WhatsApp’s, then the rest of the time focus on the task you are doing. You'll see that you become much more productive.

2. ORGANIZATION

Home organization will play a very important role right now.

 

If you find even the smallest object to have its proper place, the enjoyment of family time will be of greater quality.

3. ROUTINES

You don't have to tell yourself that your kids have to brush their teeth every day after breakfast because you already know that, but I'll give you some clues that you might not of already taken into account.

PREPARATION OF CLOTHES THE DAY BEFORE
This does not only refer to your children’s clothes, but your clothes as well. Everything should be decided and prepared the night before so that the rush of the morning is a lot smoother.
By saving a few minutes doing this task you will have more time to make sure the entrance of the house is organized. It is one of the most forgotten rooms and yet plays a very important role in maintaining order in the rest of the house.
No matter the architectural style of your entrance, the key is to focus on well-balanced decoration with practical storage solutions.

EVENING BATHS AND SHOWERS
Bathing and showering time affects sleep and the health care of our skin and hair. There are detractors in both ways, some justify taking a bath at night relaxes them and others say a warm shower wakes them up in the mornings.
These days we are dealing with the fact that we are always in a rush, so preparing things the night before in the bathroom will give us a few more minutes to have breakfast and cover last-minute contingencies like tantrums and cereal all over the dining room table.

BREAKFAST-READY TABLE
Prepare as much as you can for breakfast the next day. Tablecloth, glasses, dishes, cereals, etc ... Arrange the table as if you were going to have breakfast that same night and you will see what 10 beautiful minutes you gain in the manic mornings.

YOU FIRST
Get up 20 minutes before everyone else to get organized, dressed and arrange everything. The mornings will be more enjoyable as you will feel more relaxed and less in a hurry.

LEAVE WITH THE BED ALREADY MADE
You only need 5 minutes to make a neat bed. The trick is to have your linen adequately measured for your specific bed.
Another small tip is to leave the duvet or Nordic cover folded from half way down. It's faster and the feeling will be like that of a hotel bed. If you wear a countertop, leave it hanging. You'll be surprised that it doesn't look bad and especially when it's freshly picked up from the clothesline.
And if I haven't convinced you yet, don't miss the following video:

GIVE THE "RUMBA"...
Or the "bachata"... But as the last gesture before closing the door of the house and that is to activate this little toy. You can't imagine the joy and ambiance of your house when you get back!

PLANNING WEEKLY MENUS AND SHOPPING LISTS
Plan menus weekly and shop online with default lists and you'll solve dinner and all of your meal problems.
Sunday is usually the perfect day. You could even cook and save meals for the rest of the week.

ONE LAST LOOK
Before you go to bed, take a quick look around. If something isn't in place, don't leave it for the next day or your tasks will accumulate. Put things in their designated place right away as by doing this you'll stop the mess.
